Maybe I’m not so good – Spurs coach Conte

Tottenham Hotspur head coach Antonio Conte has described the club’s current form as ‘unacceptable’ following a shock 1-0 defeat in a league game at Burnley on Wednesday evening.

The loss against Burnley was Conte’s fourth in five Premier League games and the Italian coach appeared to question his own future at Spurs and his ability.

Conte, a serial winner with Juventus, Chelsea and Inter Milan described the current run as ‘unacceptable’ and raised doubts about his ability to turn around the club’s fortunes, having been hired in November to replace Nuno Espirito Santo.

“We are doing everything to change the situation but it’s not enough. Four defeats out of five is not good enough. This doesn’t happen to me,” said Conte, who joined Spurs in November.

“Maybe I’m not so good. Tottenham called me to change things but I’m too honest. I could just take my salary but I’m too honest. We’ve lost four out of five games. This is unacceptable.”

Tottenham are now in eighth place with 39 points from 24 games, seven points behind fourth-placed Manchester United having played two games less.

“Maybe there is something wrong; I want to take responsibility, if I have that, I’m open for every decision. I want to help Tottenham from the first day I arrive. Also to take my salary. It is not right at this moment.

Conte added: “On Saturday we play another game (at Leeds), it’s the moment to see the situation and make an assessment. I’m trying to do everything but the situation is not changing.

“In the last five games, we are playing like we are in relegation, this is the reality.

“I want to try to improve the situation and also to make an assessment with the club because if we continue in this way maybe we have to pay great attention because in this league we can finish 10th, 12th, 13th – the same way that when I arrive here, the same position.”
